To the more than 40 DLE Community Members who took time to complete the Impact Survey conducted last month, a heartfelt thanks.
The ratings and detailed comments that you provided will immediately be put into action—starting with reviews and discussion at the Dec. 3 DLE Advisory Board meeting and at Programming, Breakfast Club and Culture Chat Committee meetings over the next several weeks.
The name of every individual who submitted a completed survey was entered into a raffle for a DLE Breakfast Club first-edition hat. And the randomly selected winner is Kaled Rocha, Financial Advisor, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, Boston, MA.
When contacted with the good news, Kaled shared these comments about the importance of the DLE in his personal and professional life: “I was fortunate to have been introduced to the DLE toward the beginning stages of the COVID pandemic, around the time the nation was entering the stay-at-home orders phase.”
“The Founder, Linda Dulye, reached out to me via LinkedIn and invited me to what became my first DLE Breakfast Club. Since then, I have felt the welcoming and warmness not only from her, but also from the entire DLE community.”
“The openness and willingness of the DLE community to connect with new members, encourage them to do their best and support them during these trying times has been invaluable.”
“In a world where we can mostly only connect with people virtually this year, I have never felt alone nor isolated thanks to the wonderful DLE community.”
